Abstract:

"What do "mission" and "evangelism" mean in the theology and practice of churches active in the ecumenical movement today? "You Are the Light of the World" is a compendium of statements on Christian mission produced within the World Council of Churches (WCC) from 1980 through early 2005." "Introductions to the texts distinguish officially adopted mission policy of the WCC from the working documents of advisory bodies. Taken together, this collection reflects an ecumenical vision of the churches' calling to glorify God while bearing witness to Jesus Christ and, guided by the Holy Spirit, seeking justice and serving humanity."--BOOK JACKET.
